  1. Hat's off to you for the Kansas concept. My great-grandfather actually designed the Jayhawk, and he would be proud. Great joerb!
  2. Oh, and there's also Westlake in the Thousand Oaks area, and Echo Park Lake, plus a bunch of reservoirs
  3. Believe it or not, there actually is a lake called Lake Los Angeles. There aren't too many in the city, but in the surrounding mountains, there's Lake Castaic, Big Bear Lake, and Lake Arrowhead to name a few. Strange as it seems, yes, there are lakes in Los Angeles.
  4. Yeah, I heard about that. Terrible idea though. It would suck if the team was losing for a streak, and the fans had to stomach the fact that the fans and players would be reminded of mismanagement every time they heard the team's name. That would be like if the Clippers were renamed the Stirlings. Bad, bad idea. I still like the Dragons better, because a team name should represent the city and community, and not the owner. That's just greed right there.
  5. Well, looking through the rejected logos, I really like the first one in the third row (the one with the head in the C), just because that Bobcat actually looks fierce unlike the housecat in the actual logo. The second in the 6th row also had promise, because of the crowns on the shield. I still think that Dragons would have been a much better name, since not only are they quite menacing, but because that would connect to the whole regal connection with Charlotte as the Queen City. However, something tells me that a Gothic dragon couldn't incorporate the hip-hop look they were looking for. It's just amazing thinking about all the possibilities that were wasted. What's interesting is that Encarta says that a Bobcat is another name for a wildcat, so pretty much, that means that Charlotte borrowed the same mascot from Arizona, Kentucky, Northwestern, Kansas State, Villanova, etc. etc. So, doesn't is seem like they could have at least been somewhat original when choosing the name, yet alone the logo?
  6. I agree about the placement of the D on the jersey, but that's a great logo, and I love how you revamped the primary. That one looks so much better, especially with the line seperating the leg from the body, and with the open mouth. Much better than that rejected logo that everyone keeps bringing up. Good work.
  7. After seeing that, they would have been better off as the Dragons. Most of those logos are much better and more intimidating than all of the Bobcats logos, especially since Bobcats aren't all that threatening. Then, looking at the explination of the uniform, it looks like the "see-through" comment was referring to the gray mesh inserts, which isn't even all that see-through. Just, someone tell me, besides the side panels (which don't count), what is so revolutionary about the uniforms from a visual sense?
  8. The uniforms for the Freedom, but I can't stand those singular noun team names. Like the Magic, Heat, Galaxy, Fire, etc. Other than that, great work.
  9. Thanks for the vote, flameofatlanta. But, just for the record, it's LMUpepbander, as in Loyola Marymount University. This is just to inform everyone of that.

    Angels contest

    As luck would have it, I already had one made.
  11. The Astros logo is using the current color scheme, as opposed to the orange/navy, and the astrodome is sill there because that's where the Astros started, so it's there for historical reasons.
  12. Well, I got my entry in before the deadline, and nobody has decided to mention it, so here it is...
  13. These are really nice. The only thing though is that I thought LA ditched silver and black when the Traitors (Raiders) ran away with their tails between their legs. Then again, most of LA still considers themselves as part of the Traitor Nation, so these might just fit in. And, I do like the recolored shoulder patches. Good work.
  14. Here's one that can possibly be used as an alternate.
  15. Gold: AbbeyBF2 (Pirates) Silver: joshuamings (Reds) Bronze: Geoff Der Idiot (D-Rays) Zinc: ABAsite (Expos)
  16. OK, I just tinkered with the concepts and I ended up ditching the red striping in favor for blue striping and a red outline around the numbers. In addition, I made the sleeveless jerseys and alternate. EDIT: I added some blue into the wordmark. Let me know if it works. Home Uniforms: Road Uniforms: Alternate Uniforms: Logo:
  17. The red pipings' there so that the red from the logo could be incorporated into the rest of the jersey somehow. I wasn't too crazy about it myself, and I tried adding red to the script, but it didn't work as well as I would have liked it. I was also thinking about using the old script, but I kinda wanted to just update the garbage that they have now as opposed to completely abandoning it, but I'll go ahead and try to remove the piping, add blue piping, make the sleeveless an alternate, and perhaps make the numbers red a'la the Dodgers. I should have that up in an hour or so.
  18. Here's my shot at a Blue Jays redesign. The main feature is the redesiged hat/primary logo, which is the new logo (without the strange looking J) over a red maple leaf (like the late 90s). Then, I also made the hats and sleeves BLUE, so they are no longer the Gray Jays. Logo: Home Uniforms: Road Uniforms: EDIT: Scroll down to view the improved version
  19. Sorry, but as a Chiefs fan, this just doesn't work. The logo needs to remain the same, but maybe with a yellow outline around the arrowhead, and with a yellow outline surrounded by a red outline around the KC. Then, a yellor-red-yellow helmet stripe might work, and maybe add a yellow-red or red-yellow outline around the numbers. And, then the only other addition would be to put the arrowhead on the shoulders. Just as long as no more black or grey is thrown in like the trend is nowadays, I'll be happy.
  20. I also agree about the logo. The cheeks are way too chubby, and the facial expression looks almost like the bear's posing for a picture instead of looking fierce. The font and secondary logos are great, but I'm getting a slight Padres vibe from the tan/sand color. So, besides that, you are definately the best paint user I have ever seen.
  21. You have got to be kidding me! My Galaxy replacing the Earthquakes? First of all, I have no idea what they were thinking when they stuck the new Chivas team at the Home Depot Center. All the markets in this country that they could exploit, and they throw another team in with the Galaxy. Sorry, but why on earth would they move CHAMPIONSHIP teams to make room for minor league Mexican League teams. People can argue all they want about how Chivas USA is just owned by Chivas, but let's be serious, it's going to be a minor league feeder team. There's no way Chivas would ignore its role in the Mexican League in order to build up the USA team. All that said, I would rather see Club America be awarded an expansion franchise, instead of watching the dominos start to fall if they purchase San Jose.
  22. Hopefully this contest is still going on. Anyway, here's my entry: the Utah Stars. I kept the original color scheme, but recolored the logo of the expansion Los Angeles Stars that will begin play next season. I used the primary logo as the wordmark, and adapted it to create the 2 alternate logos. Home Uniforms: Road Uniforms: Primary Logo: Secondary Logo: Tertiary Logo:
